At the moment, LeBron James is in the midst of one of his more frustrating seasons. He dealt with strains in his lower back and left knee that caused him to miss eight straight games. (The Cavs were 1-7 in those matchups.) And now that he’s back, the team is somehow rolling again, giving credence to James’ theory that they’re simply playing harder. That’s probably not a good sign for a team struggling to create a defensive identity. On the year, the Cavs just haven’t played up to expectations, and on a personal level, James hasn’t dominated like he has in recent years, averaging “just” 26.2 points per game even after playing better recently, while being No. 7 in the league in PER, a category he’s always owned.
But you know what? The King always brings it when it comes to sneakers. His PE (player exclusive) game is probably the best in the NBA.
In early February at Champs Sports yet another dope colorway of the LeBron 12 will be releasing. Nicknamed “Court Vision,” it’s a colorway that looks like it was taken directly out of Miami, with a black upper and midsole along with deep red accents and an icy outsole.
Being a LeBron James collector in this day and age can be tough. There are just so many different Nike colorways to choose from and pick up. But if you also included everything he rocks on the court? It would be basically impossible. That’s because no other player in the NBA consistently brings as much heat to the on-court action as LeBron, and today we’re celebrating his latest release with a look back at his season in Cleveland so far. Along with the yellow and black pair above that LeBron rocked against New Orleans in early December (while scoring 41 points), here are the Hottest Nike LeBron 12 Colorways Worn in the NBA This Year by LeBron James.
